S.C.U.M. "Born Too Soon" CD

Canadian political hardcore punk essential reissue!

CD in jewel case packaging.
Canadian import.

Reissue of this Montreal bands 1985 debut LP. Powerful hardcore combining Black Flag’s guttural anger with a touch of Black Sabbath’s grinding vortex over politically-charged lyrics in the vein of Dead Kennedys or M.D.C. the vocalist sounds amazingly almost like a clear-headed Darby Crash.

S.C.U.M. stood for Society Controlled Under Murderers. The police in Montreal were known as the C.U.M. (Communaute Urbaine de Montreal) and they had street signs up for them so this was an easy grafitti thing to do was to put S's in front of their acronym. The band released "Born Too Soon" on Psyche Industries back in 1985. Sonik's Chicken Shrimp re-released all of SCUM's material on a CD, including the P.E.A.C.E comp song and the 'It came From the Pit" song.
